PG Cert Learning and Supporting Teaching in Higher Education: Resources for PG Cert

Welcome

Welcome to the Library Subject Guide for PG Cert Learning and Supporting Teaching in Higher Education

Use this guide to help you make the most of the Library & IT services available to you; for example, journals, e-books, reading lists, databases, and laptops.

Key Education Databases

Post-graduates, and researchers should use the databases listed below to do a comprehensive search of the Education literature (login to myUniHub if you have not already done so).

The databases below cover other subject areas that you may find useful (plus some education journals)

These databases can usually be searched by subject and name and more specifically by type of material, article title, publisher, year, language or organisation. A successful search will provide you with a list of references to relevant material (articles/papers).

Many of the databases provide an abstract (summary) of the article's content, which gives an indication of its usefulness and relevance. This is in addition to bibliographic details such as author, article title, journal title, issue/volume number and date.

Finding Resources

Use Summon to find articles, books, reports, DVDs, CDs and more.

Use the Library Catalogue to find books, journal titles, and renew your books.

Use Cite them right for Harvard referencing. Here is a link to a 'sample text and reference list using the Harvard style'.

Use your online reading list.

Use the key databases. Highly recommended for 2nd, 3rd, postgraduate students, and researchers.

If Middlesex does not have an item; do an Inter-library Loan for £3 per item. Recommended for 3rd years, postgraduates, and researchers.  Request Form

Research Repository - Your research. Is it visible?

Are you maximising the visibility of your research?

Research placed in our Research Repository is far more likely to be cited than information which only appears in journals as it is freely accessible to all. 

Please check the research repository for your papers and add any which are missing. 

If you're not listed, please contact your subject liaison librarian.

Other research repositories:

BIROn - Birkbeck Institutional Research Online

Apollo - University of Cambridge Repository

LSE Research Online

White Rose Research Online
